Is there really no crying in baseball?

I mean if you get beaned in the head, or take a bat to the nuts, you're not supposed to shed a tear?

PS- I just noticed there's no "Sports" category here in Answers.

  • They will never put in a sports category here. Any time I post something sports related (I love most sports- but esp. football), there are hardly any other fellow sports nuts who reply. (usually 10 or less) So I usually put one of those ques. in JFF or Entertainment

    As for the no crying rule, well, all I can say about that is FALSE! :p My dau has played softball for the past few years, & I can tell you, there IS crying in softball. And rightfully so. I guarantee, when a male player doesn't show it on the field, I'd bet money on him shedding some tears back in the locker room :p

  • Nope, no crying in baseball. I didn't cry when I took a line drive to the shin in our backyard. It took 4 weeks to fade and you could see the seams for the first week. OK...I cried. But only a little!!

  • There's a "Mom can cry clause" in baseball whenever her kid gets whomped. You had every right to bawl about that one PGA!

  • Yes there is crying. I have to admit I cried when I took a wild pitch to the hand and broke my pinkie.

    BUT... I love that movie. Tom Hanks yelling the "no crying in baseball" is hilarious!

  • That is the stupidest rule ever!!! crying is a natural reflex to pain, why repress it???

  • I hated sports--doing them, not watching them. When our gym teacher decided we were going to play baseball I cried just about every minute. She finally got fed up and sat me on the sidelines, where I wanted to be in the first place!
